Following the advice of the owner of our studio apartment, we decide to go to Porto Limionas. After a half hour of breathtaking views from a road that makes you feel suspended between the sea and the sky, we arrive in the small town of Agios Leon, from here it takes us just a couple of minutes to get to Porto Limionas.

It is a fjord with unbelievable water, it just looks like the palette of a painter with all the shades of blue imaginable, from cobalt blue to emerald green. If you are hungry there is a large tavern with a terrace overlooking the sea. For just  4€ you can get two sundbeds and a beach umbrella, they are placed on terraces on the cliff that takes you to the sea so the view is magnificent. We didn’t miss the chance and relaxed for a bit before diving into the sea with our diving masks.

 The fjord is beautiful both over and under the sea, we spend hours exploring the sea floor, full of underwater caves and full of fish, just beautiful.

In the afternoon, after a lot of sunbathing and snorkeling, we drive our scooter to Porto Roxa, a small and quiet fishing village, (to be precise, there are six fishing boats).

Su consiglio della padrona del nostro residence, decidiamo di andare a Porto Limionas. Dopo mezz’ora di strade sopsese tra mare e cielo, arriviamo nel paesino di Agios Leon, da qui pochi minuti e siamo a Porto Limionas: un fiordo con l’acqua di tutte le gradazioni dal verde smeraldo al blu cobalto; spettacolo davvero unico! Una grande taverna offre ristoro in un pergolato a picco sul mare e gestisce il noleggio di lettini e ombrelloni nei terrazzamenti ricavati nella roccia. La sorpresa più grande, soprattutto per come siamo abituati noi italiani, deve ancora arrivare: due lettini e un ombrellone= 4€ tutto il giorno!! Non ci pensiamo due volte. Dopo una breve pausa sdraiati all’ombra ci tuffiamo  nel’acqua cristallina alla scoperta del fondale: rimaniamo catturati dalle meraviglie del mondo sottomarino per ore.
